See how she tries to hide discreetly
Behind those rain scented net curtains of hers
Strawberry pink thimbles now blushing

A full punnet discarded and bruised
Her tapestries yellowed and now long since faded
Wrapped up in yesterday’s news


Ah but her lover said

Babe I still love you and never forget that

With you, life is for living and still fun



  • dusk arising

    Beauty glows! From behind a tissue of year beaten experiences a rejoicing of life is written upon the shape one has taken and radiates from within.

    The look in the eye as a hand gently squeezes yours..... holds the essence of 'why'.

    Great writing Neville.

    • Neville

      Thanking you so much for seeing just that little bit beyond the obvious... so much and always appreciated, I often struggle to find adequate words..


    • Fay Slimm.

      Another intriguing array of imagery in this tale half yet expertly told Nev. - wrapping live memories in yesterday's news means when read over again that love will never fade even when age-yellowed - - -- - -- a most appealing write ..........x

      • Neville

        Bless you and truly dear Fay... this one kind of wrote itself my friend.. Wishing you a super sunny Sunday down there on the very edge of West.... x

        Erm, I struggles a bit with the hidden meanings of some poems. But they are adequate words - and I mean more than 'Oh, that'll do, any old words!'
        Fido of course says it's ONLY about some gal eating a load of strawberries. I will put him in the back garden a while, and have some 'excitement' myself.
        Tell Fido to shut up if you wish - but he never does! lol.

        • Neville

          Ah' but that's half the fun innit.... chomping on strawberries I mean.. Nah' me n Fido are sweet

          Cheers Orchidee :)

        • Andrew Charles Forrest

          Ah my love the eternal witness that it all happened otherwise it may as well have been a dream

          Excellent Neville this could be a chapter in my book too

          Well captured

          • Neville

            How utterly novel of ya Andrew and welcome and much appreciated too

            Cheers Mate, have a great Sunday and then some :}

          • Goldfinch60

            That love will always show beauty within her and within you Neville.


            • Neville

              You are a cool cat GF60 sir.. if curiosity killed the cat, then positivity most probably would resuscitate it.. One way or another, you are gonna go on for ever my friend.. cheers
